Pittsburg State University observed Veterans Day 2012 with a special ceremony on Monday, Nov. 12. The program included both veterans and their families and local sixth graders. The observance took place in the PSU Veterans Memorial Amphitheater.
The keynote speaker for the program was Adina Sanchez, APRN, who is a captain in the U.S. Army Reserves and a Family Nurse Practitioner in Pittsburg. The St Mary’s Elementary School 6th grade band and music class provided music and the PSU ROTC posted the Colors and conducted a salute to the fallen soldier.
